Mangaluru: A delegation led by MLC and parliamentary secretary of the chief minister, Ivan D’Souza met with  Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy and Deputy Chief Minister Dr G Parameshwara and urged the government to drop the idea of cancelling public holidays.

“The action of cancelling or modifying the public holiday on Good Friday, the sacred day for Christians, as restricted holiday should be dropped,” urged the delegation after meeting with the CM.

The state government had formed a cabinet sub-committee to look into the number of public holidays. The committee has arrived to the decision of cancelling public holiday on many birthdays of historical personalities. Since Good Friday is also included in the list, the Catholic Sabha, a Catholic laypersons association from city had expressed anxiousness.

Speaking on the meeting, Mr D’Souza said that the deputy chief minister, who received the appeal, has promised not to cancel the holiday on Good Friday.
